There was a bit of carnival atmosphere at Kings Square this morning with a film crew recording the UKENDOIT ukelele group and dancers to promote the Fremantle Heritage Festival that starts today.

There are numerous great events and far too many to mention all, so check out the program on the City of Fremantle website, Facebook page or get a hard copy at the Library or Visitor Centre. We also have them at the Roundhouse!

Tomorrow the big Arthur Grady Day is at Kings Square from 11-3 so check it out!

There are quite a few Freo ukelele groups and many more in the Perth metro area, so for all lovers of the tiny string instrument the Fibonacci Centre in Blinco Street should be the destination for Saturday night. UKENDOIT is organising a ukele jam of massive proportions. Various Ukulele groups from W.A. performing 8-10 songs.

Pizza and Ukelele. What a combo!

BYO wine, order a delicious pizza from the wood fired oven and listen to various uke groups performing on the night.

Entry fee is only $ 5.00 to cover the rent for the space, so it should be a fun night that will support local creative talent and the Blinco Street Cafe, which is under the brilliant and ever smiling management of my mate Steph.

Saturday 28th feb night at the FIB. Starts 7pm sharp and finishes 9.30. Entry $5 head
